Bullets, Confessions head AFA nominations
Japan’s Oscar hopeful Confessions and China’s box office sensation Let The Bullets Fly head the list of contenders for the fifth Asian Film Awards.
Nominations were announced today at a jovial ceremony in Hong Kong, presided over by Yonfan, this year’s AFA jury head.
Both films were nominated for best film, alongside Aftershock, Poetry, Peepli Live and Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives.
If the best film category spread the nominations around across the whole Asia region, the wider list of nominees across the 14 awards categories pointed to the AFA’s continuing focus on the cinema of North East Asia.
